Welcome to Year 4 - From Mr Booth!!

 

Hello to you all and welcome to Year 4 2020 style! It is so good to see all of you looking so well and having kept yourselves safe, and we are delighted to have you back with us at Castle Hill - we've got a lot of catching up to do!! I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all and help with your learning and any way I can.

The work below is for a two week block just in case our bubble is forced to close.

Year 4's trip to Blackpool Zoo. What a wonderful day out! A huge learning opportunity that coincided with our topic on the animals of the rainforest.

Year 4 have re-told the folk story of Mufaro's Beautiful Daughter. Here is our display:

The Innocent Big Grow: Congratulations to Mia.W and Zakk you will both become our 'pea growers' #Let'sGetGrowing!

Our Favelas! Just wanted to say a big thank you to year 4 for creating the 'real side' of Brazil. Links to our topic on South America.

We have made friends across the water with a school in North America. We have told them all about what we have learnt so far on the rainforest, and of course about our recent trip to the Bolton Museum.

Our rainforest display! Thank you Mrs Tordoff for your vision. We have been focusing on the layers of the rainforest, and looking at the bugs tribes would eat (disclaimer:no bugs were harmed).

Year 4 trip to the Bolton Museum. We have been focusing on rainforests around the world and the animals they contain.

In English, we wrote biographies for The Queen. She even managed to send us a reply. We decided as a class to frame this, and leave it inside our classroom.
